A Few Gems from Thomas Sowell

Thomas Sowell is always worth reading, especially his "Random Thoughts" articles, in which he effortlessly spouts common sense that is enjoyable because it is so rare. Here are a few of his latest:

"Democrats could sell refrigerators to Eskimos before Republicans could sell them blankets."

"Do you want to have to jump through bureaucratic hoops when you are sick? If not, why would you be in favor of government-run medical care?"

"There are too many people, especially among the intelligentsia, who will never appreciate the things that have made this country great until after those things have been destroyed — with their help. Then, of course, it will be too late."

"The adage 'follow the money' will be hard to apply in the current administration, when there is so much money going in all directions that it is doubtful whether anybody can follow it."
